Mark Ernestus to compile his Senegal-inspired Jeri-Jeri singles on two new compilations
May 24, 2013 3:28am | Fact Magazine
Basic Channel icon and Hard Wax boss Mark Ernestus will compile his Afrocentric Jeri-Jeri project on two new full-lengths.
Ernestus has long been smitten with the sounds of the plateau continent: he helped curate Honest Jon’s vital 2011 Shangaan Electro compilation, and contributed to last year’s rewarding Shangaan remix series. His recent Jeri-Jeri project saw Ernestus working with Senegalse Sabar and Mbalax musicians (the former is a polyrhythmic drum music played on the sabar drum; the latter is a sabar-infused, rhythmically frantic brand of West African dance music.)
The Jeri-Jeri recordings were laid down in 2011 in Dakar, and have been dripfed to the public over five 12″s on Ernestus’ bespoke Ndagga label from 2012-13. Notable collaborators on the project include Baaba Maal, Youssou N’Dour and Bakane Seck. As Resident Advisor report, Ernestus will collect all of his Jeri-Jeri material on two new compilations. 800% Ndagga will assemble all of the vocal tracks, whereas Ndagga Version will bring together the instrumental tracks. The 800% Ndagga material in particular feels like a rootsier counterpart to Shangaan’s frenetic percussive play, augmented by Ernestus’ dubby touches and studio jiggery-pokery.
800% Ndagga and Ndagga Versions will both see release on June 3. Ernestu...
Stream new Boards of Canada track
May 24, 2013 3:12am | The Line Of Best Fit
After an agonisingly long promotional campaign for the new Boards of Canada album, Tomorrow’s Harvest, it seems only fitting that the first track revealed from their new record is one of slow build.
But sure as ever, they get there, creating a crescendo of synaesthetic arpeggios and washed out synths. Was it all worth the wait? On this early glimpse, we’re assured the upcoming LP will make the last eight years since their last record all seem like a hazy daydream. Perhaps quite literally.
Tomorrow’s Harvest is out 10 June in the UK and 11 June in North America, via Warp. Listen to ‘Reach For The Dead’ beneath:
And here’s a video for the track:

Three eras. Three Suedes. Ten years apart. Three different bands.
Tribes - Wish to Scream
May 24, 2013 3:02am | Drowned In Sound
Every so often, the UK music press seizes upon a new guitar band to spin doctor, and more often than not, proclaims them the next Arctic Monkeys, next Oasis, the next big thing. A few years back, I saw the Camden-based, leather-jacketed, guerrilla gig-playing Tribes written up as the next Libertines and, for much the same reasons that I can still be found buying the NME when Pete and Carl are on the cover, checked them out. Beneath all the hype, there seemed to be a lot of potential. Early demoes showcasing
Watch long-lost footage of The Smiths
May 24, 2013 2:56am | Fact Magazine
Every year or so, some arrant nonsense about an impending Smiths reunion briefly does the rounds. It’s easy to forget, then, that a Smiths reunion of sorts has actually already happened – albeit back in 1988.
Salford’s finest called it a day back in 1987 following Johnny Marr’s departure from the group. Morrissey swiftly began work on a solo career, working with Vini Reilly and Stephen Street on his first solo effort Viva Hate. A year to the day after their split, Morrissey’s manager contacted his former band members to invite them to join the singer at a forthcoming gig at Wolverhampton Civic Hall. Although Marr demurred, drummer Mike Joyce and bassist Andy Rourke took up the offer – a remarkable call, given that Joyce and Rourke were suing Morrissey at the time (something Joyce says “wasn’t mentioned.”)
As NME report, rare footage of the December 22, 1988 gig has now emerged online. The video shows the band rattling through a string of Smiths tracks which had never been played live before, plus material Joyce and Rourke had previously recorded with Morrissey, including ‘Last Of The Famous International Playboys’. Smiths tracks include ‘Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before’ and ‘Sweet And Tender Hooligan’, with a clutch of Morrissey originals sprinkled into the 40-minute set too. As is to be ex...
